fetchmail & whiteclnt

The whiteclnt lists 127.0.0.1 as "ok".  However, fetchmail
uses that as its default interface.  So if you fetchmail 
from a remote site full of spam, it sneaks in past dcc checking.
So you need to either (a) remove 127.0.0.1 from whiteclnt
or (b) run fetchmail so that it feeds sendmail on an external
interface.  Perhaps warrants a note in the docs.  Also,
worth mentioning the cure -- go get the files lacking X-DCC,
e.g. a folder Z: cat Z | dccproc > ZZ; mv ZZ Z.
